Teaching “oa” & Adjectives!

Hey, y’all!  Long time, no talk to!
It’s taken me a couple of days to get back in my teaching groove, so I only have a few things to post!  It’s amazing how being sick can just knock the life right out of you and set you back days.  My creativity has even suffered!
Anyway, this week we’re studying long /o/o, oa, and ow {again} and adjectives.
I combined both and read the book Boats by Gail Gibbons to my students.
We then described the boats we saw in the book and organized our thoughts into a whole-group graphic organizer.
Then, I had my kididdles make boats and write adjectives to describe them.  Nothing super cutie, but effective nonethless 🙂
Here are pics of our There’s A Wocket in my Pocket activities.  Thanks again, Rachelle!!!  Her Seuss Unit was FULL of amazing things.  Hopefully, next year I’ll be present for the whole week!
There’s something very sweet about this unassuming cockit.  He he he.
And this Schmrocket is a leeeeetle bit scary…

Also, please tell me I am not the only teacher who could cry over the amount of these babies that I go through in a week…


Despite my relentless efforts to help them Practice Safe Sharpening they still sharpen them down to the nubs all. the. time.  Or lose them.  Or eat them.  {No, really, I have erasers chewed off daily.} Charging them tickets every time then need a new pencil has proved ineffective.  How on earth do you keep your students supplied with these fatties?  SOS!
